It is possible to NOT have telnet installed.

I remember seeing this as an installable option on Windows XP (and probably earlier versions).

I'm on Win7 Home Premium on this machine, so I can't tell you where the option is at the moment.

I'll be at work later on (9 hours or so), so I can check there (WinXP at work).

The Telnet client is no longer a default feature in WIndows 7, but it is very easy to enable. Open the control panel and go into Programs and features. ON the left hand menu, select "Turn Windows Features on or Off" and you will be presented with a list of features, some of which will be enabled and some of which won't. Select the checkbox next to 'Telnet Client' and then press OK.

Go to the "Start" menu on the bottom left-hand corner of your screen. Click "Run" and type in Telnet. Press the "OK" button or "Enter" on your keyboard.

Type the letter "o" in the prompt. When the window appears, you will see a line reading "Microsoft Telnet>". This is the prompt; "o" will open a connection prompt.

Input the IP address or domain name of your destination. Insert the IP after the trigger "<to>". Press "Enter". A connection of the destination will appear on the window.
